Jacinda Russell is a photographer of
objects - the object transformed into a self-portrait, a representation
of place, a distant memory, or a symbol of fixation. Important influences
in Russell’s work include found photographs, maps, 16th century
cabinets of curiosity, worn and dilapidated objects, obsessive behavior
in collecting, repetition, and storytelling. Currently, she is an Assistant
Professor of Art at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Russell received
her MFA in photography from the University of Arizona and her BFA from
Boise State University. Her mixed media installations and photographs
have been exhibited nationally and her work is represented in the collections
of the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, the Museum of Fine Arts,
Houston, and Reed College, Portland, Oregon.
